About Backpackers Newcastle

Situated near the bustling cosmopolitan centre of Hamilton is a boutique backpacker’s hostel just perfect for a relaxing first stop after the craziness of Sydney.

Hang out in our hammocks below shady palm trees, take a dip in our beautiful sun-warmed pool, or catch one of the many free local buses to discover Newcastle's stunning beaches (bus stop only 1min walk away).

We have a free pool table, free on street parking, coin operated laundry, internet kiosk, brand new BBQ area, a free meal or two, comfy beds and camping available.

We are cleaned daily and have a very friendly and knowledgeable staff that will help you plan your travels (and join you at the nearest pub!). Wine-tasting, dolphin and whale watching, surf lessons, sand boarding and much more can all be organized for you at Backpackers Newcastle.

Coming in by train or bus? Call us to arrange a free pick up and drop off service in our mini van. Got a group? Call or email us directly to find out how we can cater for you!

Backpackers Newcastle - your home away from home!
